Why Los Rios Colleges Online?

Flexible Learning

Figuring out how to balance school with work and home responsibilities can be daunting. Los Rios Colleges Online gives students the flexibility they need to study on their own terms and within their own schedules, without neglecting their other priorities.

Supportive

College is a huge undertaking. Los Rios Colleges Online pairs every student to their own personal success coach. Our success coaches are here to guide and support you throughout your educational journey.

Affordable

With the cost of college sky-rocketing around the nation and student debt piling up, there has never been a better time to pursue your academic dreams at the Los Rios community colleges. Los Rios Colleges Online is an affordable way to earn a degree or certificate, or save money before transferring to a four-year university.

The vast majority of our students qualify for free tuition through the Los Rios Promise, which combines local and state money to eliminate financial barriers for students. Many students qualify for additional financial support – such as federal financial aid, scholarships, or even emergency funds (when life throws a curveball).

Reputation

Unlike some private online institutions, Los Rios Colleges Online courses are accredited by the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges (ACCJC), Western Association of Schools and Colleges. The ACCJC is an institutional accrediting body recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation and the US Department of Education.
